There are two types of  study material:

1. Global Studies

These are the latest versions of our studies. Global studies have questions that are discussion-oriented  with fewer cross-references, a more modern looking layout and more direct and easily understood language construction. The studies are suitable for teens and adults and very good for people who are starting to study as well as those who have been studying a while. It focuses on a strong challenge to the heart.  They are great if you are starting a group or hoping to invite new people into an existing group…so that’s most of us! Here is our list of Global study materials with samples of each.

2. Classic Studies

The classic study material is more in-depth and has more questions per lesson. This material invites you into the background passages via cross-references to see how the Bible is all one book and at the same time deeply challenges both our understanding and obedience to God’s Word. Here is our list of classic studies with samples of each.
